Overview
Renewable energy is derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly. It includes electricity and heat generated from solar, wind, ocean, hydropower, biomass, geothermal resources, biofuels and hydrogen.
source of energy for the majority of Ghanaians, and will continue to contribute substantially to national energy demand. However, this resource serves as a carbon sink and if not sustainably managed, would significantly increase the amount of green house gas (GHG) emissions in Ghana.
Key Challenges
Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) are inexhaustible and offer numerous environmental benefits over conventional energy sources. Significantly, most of them release little or no pollutants during operation. However, they have relatively high initial capital cost. The lack of comprehensive regulations in the country further hinders their development.

Looking Ahead
The institute’s strategy for renewable energy shall focus primarily on hydropower, solar and wind technologies. The Government shall be encouraged to establish a regulatory body to promote policy formulation and advocacy on the use of renewable energy. From a development perspective, the growth of the use of renewable energy in industry will create jobs and help establish markets as centers for innovation and green technology.
